I finally got round to purchasing the stamp set ‘Five for All’ on page 75 of the Annual Catalogue.
It’s got some really fun sentiments and this week I was able to use one of them on a card for a friend who celebrated a big ‘0’ birthday on Thursday. I wanted to create a fun card and I think this sentiment is perfect. We have been friends since we were pre-schoolers often spending the holidays staying at each others houses and playing with her many Barbie dolls :).
I’ve teamed the sentiment with another of my favourite stamp sets from the Annual Catalogue – You’ve Got Style
Now isn’t that a cool sentiment?
The image is stamped in Memento Black Ink and then coloured in using the Stampin’ Write Markers. For some of the areas I used the fine end of the marker as sometimes the thick end of the marker is to big to use – you don’t want to be going over the lines! Her face and hands are coloured in using the Calypso Coral Watercolour Pencil as you can get a lighter colour than the markers.
The Card base, ribbon and sentiment use Berry Burst – I’m loving this colour – it’s nice and bright.
I’ll be back tomorrow to share with you the cards I made for our recent team training using products from the new Holiday Catalogue.
